CITY HALL: Hume and Levy dissect the budget talks
A handful of city councillors have spent the day crunching the mayor's budget numbers.The 2011 budget lays out how the city will be spending our money in the year ahead. Today the audit committee is double-checking those numbers to make sure the budget will be balanced.
Starting Wednesday, the full council will get ITS hands on the controversial document -- controversial because although it's balanced NOW, it has come at a cost.It borrows heavily from next year's funds.The mayor says he's confident he can find enough waste at city hall in the coming year to offset that deficit.
But not everyone is so sure.
We talked about the situation with our two city hall watchers: Toronto Sun columnist Sue-Ann Levy, and Toronto Star urban affairs columnist Christopher Hume. Listen (runs 8:09)
